Highway 97 Closed At Taylor

RCMP confirm the incident will close the highway for up to six hours.  Traffic is being re-routed both north and south of the accident scene.  It appears diesel did spill from the tanker, however, there’s no indication just how much.  Taylor Fire & Rescue is on the scene.  The Provincial Emergency Program has been notified.

Conditions on area highways were slick early this morning after as much as two centimetres of snow fell on the region.  RCMP, however, have yet to confirm if road conditions did play a factor.
